Tennessee report just said that Haynesworth "went on record as saying he doesn't want to be one of the top paid defenders in the league, he wants to be THE highest paid defensive player in the league"

reporter said that would be 30-35 million up front in guaranteed money along with a solid base yearly salary.

No surprise, absolute punk. Exact opposite of a Pioli player.

If only we had drafted him instead of Sims, we could be letting his big contract go elsehwere rather than hoping for shot at him.

Ugh.

I'm glad I don't have to worry about Pioli trying to bring him in. As for FA I'm hoping we might be taking a look and the Cards MLB. I think he'd flourish here IMO.

On a 7 year contract, that's only an average of $4.5-$5 million per year, plus whatever the base salary would be-that's not absurd, IMO. Haynesworth is absolutely worth that kind of money.

No how, no way I give him that.

The guy performed when he was getting ready for a payday.

DT is not our issue.

Guaranteed money.

Not contract money.

You are basically talking about a 7 year, 75 million dollar deal for him.

No fucking way he's worth that.

In negotiations, they should hold him down and have the Gurode spike him in the fivehead.

Exactly.

This is really a pointless conversation, since Clark and Scott have come out and said they aren't going to be targeting Tier 1 FA's.

However, for sake of conversation:

If you're going to spend a ton of money on a FA, Peppers would be the way to go.

First, he fits a need.

Second, I don't see him being the type to get paid, then be content and half-ass it.

Haynesworth is far from a need, and absolutely seems like the type to get paid and then mail it in.

Hell, for that kind of money, Pioli could fix the entire defense, instead of giving all that money to one player.

No ****ing way he's worth that. I agree, the problem is the guaranteed money. Essentially, he would be untradeable because of the cap hit, but I don't believe those numbers are out of line for a player of his caliber.

I also know, a team could give less in guaranteed money and more in terms overall money as an alternative, if they really we're interested-I don't think we'll be that team. Just pointing out-the bonus money on a 7 year deal isn't outrageous like some seem to think.

I've heard other players say that Peppers gave minimal effort during key moments of the Panthers loss to the Cardinals.

If I was going to spend major cash on a FA DE, I'd get a guy like Jared Allen

I'll bet it will be more likely to see the Chiefs go after a player that say, the new HC is familiar with, like Carlos Dansberry.

Anyone who gives Haynesworth that kind of scratch is an idiot. The guy can't even control himself enough to not stomp on someone's face with his cleat. Forget it. Move on.
